Scrumping

Alice wakes up in the Joy family’s back garden in the evening, still stressed and starving.

Thinking better of asking again to be let in, instead she simply steals all of the apples from the tree in their garden, and goes home.

That little haul should keep her going over the weekend, in the absence of school dinners.

Next: Just trying to be alone

    It’s a good thing a single apple can satiate the hungriest of sims in this game. Plus, you could steal the harvest of your neighbors. I should know since I tried it already.😄 I feel sorry for Alice though.

    The pictures here are mind-blowingly effective. They’re almost as great as the writing.

    There isn’t actually Real School dinners- are there? I’ve never came across them, I mean, i like try my best (when not caring for the ‘rents) to pay attention to the teens/kids “hunger” mood bar thingy. I never saw it rise, only decrease. But yeah, I gotta try the homeless thing! But i know what you did to make them “look” homeless- place that family on an empty lot and never built a home. Good idea!

    If they get too hungry while at work or school they’ll have a meal there. Alice surely was starving whenever she arrived.

    Haha, every time that kid is in a screen grab, he’s thinking about himself!

    Do you have them growing anything in their own yard? Since Sims can pick up lots of free things to plant — like apples, water-mellon, lettuce, etc… Did you consider a garden? That would be a free way to get food for them in their own yard…

    That second to last picture is *so* sad and expressive! Wow.
